    Need a GPS/Speedometer

    Which GPS unit do you guys recomend that does not cost too much? I see the ones people have in the videos were they use it to get their speed dumping it in the glove compartment and wanted to get something similar but I have no knowledge of what to get and woudl appreciate some suggestions or a starting point.

    Will this one show you speed based on GPS? I was looking at the manual online and did not see it.

    yup i've got the same one. it was $110 from wal-mart. (could've got it cheaper online) its very simple once u figure it out. all you have to do is turn it on, let it connect to the satellites, make sure its displaying max speed, reset the numbers, then fly like the wind.

    I appreciate your help. I am ignorant when it comes to GPS devices since I've never owned one. I have a 06 GTI and am getting a 06 RXP this Fri so I wanted to get one to baseline them.
